About our vinyl

We use a variety of vinyl types depending on the colors you order. Standard colors are produced with a 3M 6 year vinyl/laminate combination (which will often last longer). Specialty colors can vary greatly depending on the specific color. In general specialty films carry at least a 3 year outdoor life as rated by the manufacturer. Need better adhesive? Our high tack adhesive option is ideal for low energy plastics like kayaks and waverunners.

Just watch the video. So easy. Suggest using “lettering” for everything because BoatDecals sends them with one backing to peel away easily, taking the lining up letters separately out of it, but not using print stickers.
